It really frustrates me how, when people want to argue against casting a person of color for a certain role, they always resort to “UM OKAY BUT CAN YOU FIND A NATIVE AMERICAN ACTRESS WHO HAS X Y AND Z PHYSICAL TRAITS??” and then it forces people to argue that, yes, natives can have green eyes or black people can have red hair etc etc 

when really the natural eye color and hair color of the actress of color should be JUST as inconsequential as it is for a white actress because GUESS WHAT??? There are things such as 1) hair dye 2) wigs 3) colored contact lenses.

Like, I’m about 95 % sure that Jennifer Lawrence is wearing colored contact lenses AND a wig in the Hunger Games but nobody seems to care.

Like when it comes down to it, there are very few physical attributes you cannot/should not change via makeup or cgi—and those are predominately skin color & physical disabilities. Pretty much everything else can be, and almost always is changed.

Staging can change how tall a character seems. Actors can lose or gain weight or muscle as the character requires. Tattoos can be stenciled on. Body hair can be added or taken away. Padded bras or binders can be used. Hell, they REMOVED Ralph Fienne’s nose for Voldemort. 

Wigs and colored contact lenses are two of THE MOST frequently utilized aspects of character costuming & make up and when you say something like “Annie can’t be black because black people don’t have red hair!!” what you’re really saying is that you think that people of color should be barred from playing characters unless they exactly match up with the physical description in a way that white people have never, and will never, be held to.

TV Shows Meme: 4/9 relationships [Lena Headey + Pedro Pascal]

"Lena is one of my favorite persons. And she (in life) is so funny and so smart, such a good person, a good friend and a good mother, I think everyone on that set and anyone who comes in contact with her develops an instant crush. Talk about male or female, you’re going to get a crush on her easy."

sometimes tumblr’s US-centric social justice makes me so fucking frustrated. Right now sweden’s third biggest party are literally neo-nazis and our elections couldn’t even get onto trending tags today, goddamit.

Okay, so the post is gaining notes and people are confused, so to explain what the hell is going on:

Swedish elections held were on last Sunday, 14th September. We’ve had a right-leaning government the past eight years and after this there will be a change of power. The new party, Socialdemocrats (S) gained a total of 31% percent. The old party, Moderaterna (M) gained 21%. 

Sverigedemokraterna (SD) gained a total of 12.9%. Their policy is racist, Islamophobic, anti-immigration, anti-refugee, anti-diversity, anti-LGBT+, and anti-feminist. Basically, they tick every box on the douchebag lottery.

If you’re here to argue that they’re ~not actually~ Nazis: 1) Fuck you. 2) Fuck the horse the you rode in on. 3) I hope you get stepped on by a moose, you ignorant asswipe. 

  1.  they literally started as neo nazis. They have used a Neo-Nazi movement as campaign slogans,
  2. party members have assaulted immigrants with iron pipes (tw for racialised violence),
  3. worn Nazi symbols 
  4. supported and helped build Neo-Nazi group SvP.

There’s probably more, but I don’t have links on hand. 

They’ve been having rallies and demonstrations all over Sweden, and people have shown up just to turn their back on them and protest (this post explains it better). 

In the 2010 elections, SD were pretty much considered no better than neo-Nazis and only got 5.7% votes - it put them in 6th place and was just enough to get them into parliament. In the elections before that, they got about 2.9%. In the past four years, they’ve grown exponentially in Sweden.

They’ve also run extremely extensive PR campaigns, appealing to the youth, kicking out members “exposed” of being racist, (note: these members often end up in SvP) and picking up buzzwords from the Socialdemocrats’ ideology. 

29% of votes they gained this year were from swing voters who previously voted M,  and the biggest gain have been in the south, in small towns and the countryside:

This is not something that’s just going on in Sweden. Europe has seen an influx of extreme-right parties over the last decade or so, often thinly disguised as a party that puts ‘traditional values’ and ‘national interest’ first.

In Greece and Hungary they’ve already been in power. In Germany, Netherlands, Italy, Greece, Finland France and UK, extreme-right-wing parties have been voted into the EU. 

Because here’s the thing: we’ve forgotten what it looks like. We’ve gotten to the point where we’ve turned Nazism into a cartoonish lampoon of goose-stepping, uniforms and moral lessons that “we’ll never be like them~”, ignoring the fact nationalism is not as cut-and-dry two ends of an extreme but exists on a scale.

People have been apologising for SD’s actions for a while now because they’re not considered “extremist enough” to be neo-Nazis, because they don’t share the same beliefs, because they’ve “publicly denounced” SvP. 

But the same people still get hurt. Still SD has the institutional and systematic power and privilege to oppress, degrade and humiliate people of colour, which they already have done. Stop making excuses for them. Stop making leeways for right-wing-extremists because that is how they gain tract. 

Please spread this.

It’s been over two weeks since mankind failed to vote for “Persephone” as a name for one of Pluto’s moons - my way of coping with the disappointment was drawing Hades’ reaction, obviously.

this is adorable
